Villanueva will fill in for Jake Arrieta, who is expected to open the year on the disabled list. Villanueva has taken on a swing-man role in recent seasons.

Villanueva posted a 4.06 ERA in 128 2/3 innings last year.
"I feel good to play," Casilla said. "I know in the past I’ve played with worse." Casilla was scratched from Sunday's game with knee swelling. The team is likely being safe with Casilla, as he's dealt with injuries throughout camp. He should be able to get back into games shortly.
Jonathan Schoop will shift over to shortstop to replace Casilla. It's been a frustrating spring for Casilla. He's been dealing with a hamstring injury throughout most of camp, and has now been diagnosed with a knee issue.
Casilla hit .214 in 112 at-bats last year.
Austin is planning to take batting practice on the field Monday. He's been dealing with a wrist injury during camp, but is starting to feel better. If he can get through batting practice, he should try and play in a game later in the week.
